my fabulous friend
I have another card to share today that uses the Friends 'Til the End set. I love how did this flower is from most of the other Papertrey flower sets. It's such a beautiful and realistic looking flower. (I don't know much about flowers so I have no idea what kind of flower it is.) I started out by stamping my flower patterned paper using true black ink on white cardstock. Once it dried for just a minute, I added some red stitching before adding it to my card. I cut a true black rectangle using a rectangle nestability die. Then, I stamped the flower and leaves on white cardstock and colored them with copic markers. I added my sentiment and true black rectangle to my card using foam adhesive. Then, I used more foam adhesive to add my flower and leaves after I cut them out with detail scissors. Last, I added a few buttons to my card.
I've been looking into getting a faster internet connection (I'm on dial up). The problem seems to be that I live in a fairly rural area (I live in town, but our county is like the end of the world! lol) and not much is offered here (no verizon high speed even). I did find one company that offers wireless and dsl. They tell me their dsl is faster than their wireless. It would help if I knew much about them or even what the difference is. lol We think we might try the dsl. Anyone have any tips or suggestions?
Have a Happy Day!
